Description

The Alfa-Romeo 6C 1750 was one of the most successful racing Alfa Romeo's ever built and was launched in 1929 as an evolution of the 1928 Mille Miglia winning 6C 1500.

The 6C 1750 enjoyed a highly successful sporting career including a 1-2-3 finish at the Mille Miglia with the winning car of Tazio Nuvolari averaging more than 100hm/h in addition to top results at the Targa Florio, the Tourist Trophy and Spa 24 hours in the early 1930’s.

Production of the Sport and Super Sport lasted only two years and many 6Cs were made with sports saloon and drophead coupe bodywork,k while the fastest and most attractive were the short chassis cars bodied by Zagato which remain the most desirable.

This series four 6C 1750 GS was built in 1930 and was previously owned by highly respected pre-war Alfa racer Rodney Felton, known for his heroic racing exploits with both 8C and Tipo B in VSCC events for many years. The 6C was restored in the 1970s and fitted with the highly attractive Zagato type coachwork it wears today, beautifully hand crafted in aluminium. The Alfa later formed part of a large private UK collection and was displayed in a museum in the Isle of Man

This 6C 1750 is the perfect eligible vintage entry to many of the world’s most prestigious tours, rallies and race meetings. With its handsome Zagato style coachwork, original chassis and matching numbers supercharged engine, this 6C 1750 offers exciting pre-war Italian motoring at its finest and is fitted with a new set of Blockley tires.
